I want Joe back and I want him here long-term, but if it requires a max deal then let him go.
Here are the candidates to replace the Joe Show.
John Salmons - Essentially the same player as Johnson though not quite as good defensively..... or offensively. But Salmons would fill the JJ void. And he has the added value of already playing with Bibby in Sacramento. Overall, I think Salmons would be a good alternative and just a lateral move.
Anthony Morrow - Call me bias for the GT grad but Morrow would be a nice option. In his two years at Golden State Morrow has been one of the best 3-point shooters in the league and the only good defender on a horrible defensive squad. Morrow is young, though, so the Spirit may be reluctant to give him the keys to the team. So Morrow, if signed, could fill Jamal's spot as Jamal fills Joe's. Either way, Anthony could be a nice pickup. Especially considering his upside.
Rudy Gay - Probably not as well rounded a player as JJ, but arguably still better. If Memphis can't lock this guy up the Hawks should definitely take a look at him, even if that means letting Joe leave. Plus, don't you kinda wanna get back at the Griz for almost stealing Smooth from us?
Micheal Redd - If healthy, could be a major steal. Though I don't see any logical reason for Redd to opt outta his contract.
Al Harrington - I realize he's a Foreward. Bring him off the bench to fill Jamal's scoring, then let Jamal start. Bam!
Allen Iverson - I don't care. I love AI. There.
Jamal Crawford - "The Difference" may turn into "The Stopgap" if all goes horribly wrong this off season. I love Jamal off the bench, but the thought of Crawford and Bibby having to defend the best guards in the league to start a game? Not for me.
